MAMBAJAO, CAMIGUIN, September 1 (PIA) — Camiguin province is currently undertaking a massive vaccination for pets and livestock animals to maintain zero occurrence of rabies cases and to prevent an outbreak of destructive diseases.
The Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO) leads this house-to-house campaign, administering rabies, hemorrhagic septicemia and hog cholera vaccines.
As of July this year, 10,707 livestock animals, including dogs, were serviced, helping 6,213 farming families and pet owners. Most of these animals consist of cattle, carabao, swine, goats, cats and dogs, as well as poultry animals.
The vaccination is initiated once every six months, while it also offers a year-round assistance for treatment and deworming.
Dr. Louis S. Bollozos, PVO chief veterinarian, added that their office undertakes other services, such as artificial insemination and animal health service (blood, fecal and semen examination). (PIA 10)
